ARDS TEST

MSV Trackdays can help you take one of the first steps to becoming a racing driver, with an official ARDS National B racing licence test at any one of our five circuits. Sitting the test is the MSA's minimum requirement and a great introduction to motorsport, ahead of what we hope will be years of happy racing.

Then, it's on to the driving part of the test where where one of our instructors will assess your track driving during a 20 minute lapping session in one of our Peugeot RCZs*.

You must also show your knowledge of the racing line and ultimately assure the instructor that you are safe and able to enter your first race.

Don't worry - they will not be looking for you to set a new lap record and although it is a test, we think you'll enjoy yourself as well! If you think that you need some training on track prior to sitting your test, visit the Driver Training section of the website.

If you haven't done so already, you must order your Go Racing Pack (£100 plus P+P), from the Go Racing section of our website. It contains your application form, DVD and an electronic copy of the current MSA regulations to prepare you for the ARDS test. Then it's as simple as booking an appropriate date!
